As daily consumers of foods and beverages, everyone has opinions and interests about their diet choices. However, many questions about food are often non-technical and, therefore, defy technical answers. Introducing Food Science addresses a range of food issues facing today’s consumer, proceeding from a general and student-friendly discussion to an in-depth technical overview of the basic principles of food science. This authoritative textbook starts by addressing food issues in the news, from disease outbreaks to the health benefits and detriments associated with international trade. It then outlines the basic principles of food manufacturing and processing techniques with a strong emphasis on unit operations. With the aid of flowcharts, photographs, and thought-provoking questions, the text assesses the importance of labeling and nutritional information and describes the requirements for providing consumers with the wealth of food options available on grocery store shelves. The book then demonstrates the importance of regulations in ensuring a healthy and safe food supply and culminates with an introduction to the basic scientific underpinnings of food science. Introducing Food Science emphasizes the separation of what is known from what is unknown about food issues and then determines how those issues can be reformulated into testable hypotheses. Unlike other food science references, it conveys both commercial and scientific perspectives, providing a true flavor of food science. About the Author: Dr. Robert Shewfelt is the Josiah Meigs Distinguished Teaching Professor of Food Science and Technology at the University of Georgia. He advises more than 50 students and has taught 11 different courses in the past two years ranging from Freshman Seminars in Chocolate Science and Coffee Technology to graduate-level courses in Food Research & the Scientific Method.

The area of food toxicology currently has a high profile of interest in the food industry, universities, and government agencies, and is certainly of great concern to consumers. There are many books which cover selected toxins in foods (such as plant toxins, mycotoxins, pesticides, or heavy metals), but this book represents the first pedagogic treatment of the entire range of toxic compounds found naturally in foods or introduced by industrial contamination or food processing methods. Featuring coverage of areas of vital concern to consumers, such as toxicological implications of food adulteration (as seen in ethylene glycol in wines or the Spanish olive oil disaster) or pesticide residues, Introduction to Food Toxicology will be of interest to students in toxicology, environmental studies, and dietetics as well as anyone interested in food sources and public health issues. The number of students who are interested in toxicology has increased dramatically in the past several years. Issues related to toxic materials have received more and more attention from the public. The issues and potential problems are reported almost daily by the mass media, including television, newspapers, and magazines. Major misunderstandings and confusion raised by those reports are generally due to lack of basic knowledge about toxicology among consumers. This textbook provides the basic principles of food toxicology in order to help the general public better understand the real problems of toxic materials in foods. Principles of toxicology Toxicities of chemicals found in foods Occurrence of natural toxins in plant and animal foodstuffs Food contamination caused by industry Toxic chemicals related to food processing Food additives Microbial toxins in foods

This is a new book on food process engineering which treats the principles of processing in a scientifically rigorous yet concise manner, and which can be used as a lead in to more specialized texts for higher study. It is equally relevant to those in the food industry who desire a greater understanding of the principles of the food processes with which they work. This text is written from a quantitative and mathematical perspective and is not simply a descriptive treatment of food processing. The aim is to give readers the confidence to use mathematical and quantitative analyses of food processes and most importantly there are a large number of worked examples and problems with solutions. The mathematics necessary to read this book is limited to elementary differential and integral calculus and the simplest kind of differential equation.

This new edition offers a timely update to the leading textbook dedicated to all aspects of U.S. food policy. The update accounts for experience with policy changes in the 2014 Farm Bill and prospects for the next Farm Bill, the publication of the 2015–2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the removal of Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status for trans fats, the collapse of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) treaty, stalled child nutrition reauthorization legislation, reforms in food-labeling policy, the consequences of the 2016 presidential election and many other developments. The second edition offers greater attention both to food justice issues and to economic methods, including extensive economics appendices in a new online Companion Website. As with the first edition, real-world controversies and debates motivate the book’s attention to economic principles, policy analysis, nutrition science and contemporary data sources. The book assumes that the reader's concern is not just the economic interests of farmers and food producers but also includes nutrition, sustainable agriculture, food justice, the environment and food security. The goal is to make U.S. food policy more comprehensible to those inside and outside the agri-food sector whose interests and aspirations have been ignored. The chapters cover U.S. agriculture, food production and the environment, international agricultural trade, food and beverage manufacturing, food retail and restaurants, food safety, dietary guidance, food labeling, advertising and federal food assistance programs for the poor. The author is an agricultural economist with many years of experience in the nonprofit advocacy sector, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and as a professor at Tufts University. The author's blog on U.S. food policy provides a forum for discussion and debate of the issues set out in the book.

Food is gradually becoming a force of change in the health world. As chronic disease rates and health costs rise, populations are increasingly looking towards food as an affordable alternative form of treatment. Functional food, a revolutionary category of food that is taking the world by storm, is popular across the world. However, certain setbacks, such as the lack of a consistent definition across nations and low food education among the public, have held functional food back from high market accessibility. The Functional Food Center (FFC) has been studying functional food for nearly 20 years, and in our third textbook edition, we delve into greater detail regarding topics in functional food science. Specifically, we cover topics such as: the definition of functional food, functional food components, health benefits, chronic diseases, global markets, and sensory evaluation. In addition to these main sections, we discuss sub-topics, such as: modern scientific technology, the relationship between functional food science and medicine, and finally, how food claims are regulated across the world. Accessible to medical doctors, researchers, dietitians, public health professionals, students, and the public, this textbook is meant to enlighten any and all interested in alternative sources of health. Some scientists predict that food will be the future of healthcare and wellness. We agree, and think that functional food is the first glimpse into that future. Using the insight and knowledge of over 3,000 scientific references, we have created a guide to modern functional food science. Edited by Danik M. Martirosyan, PhD, President of Functional Food Center (Dallas, TX, USA), this textbook is the result of a collaboration between 54 scientists, 44 universities, and international medical and food organizations. We would like to extend our warmest gratitude to each and every contributor of this book for having shared their articles with us. Our contributors are experts in their fields and are based in a variety of countries, including: Australia, Canada, United Kingdom, Italy, Japan, China, Denmark, Russia, India, Hong Kong, Hungaria, Indonesia, Malaysia, Brazil, Poland, Republic of Korea, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Thailand, Belarus, the USA and more. Our diversity of backgrounds adds richness to this book and to all of our other publications at the FFC. Danik M. Martirosyan, PhD, President, Functional Food Institute, Dallas, TX, USA
